Winston's Wish -Giving hope to grieving children

Winston’s Wish provides grief and bereavement support for children and young people (up to 25)

Winston's Wish offer  bereavement support to children and young people before, during and after a bereavement.

Winston’s Wish is a charity that helps children, teenagers and young adults (up to the age of 25) find their feet when their worlds are turned upside down by grief.

Through information about grief, on-demand helpline, email and live chat services, bereavement support and counselling, we support young people to understand their feelings, process their grief and find ways to move forward with hope for a brighter future.

We also help the adults who are caring for young grieving people, including parents, school staff and healthcare professionals, through information, resources, training and on-demand services.
